Default TPMS light

Took the wagon on a 400+ mile excursion last week. Used the new 2" receiver eco hitch with a hitch rack (apx. 250#'s total additional weight). rear squatted apx. 1" @ wheel well, not bad. a little squirrely but o.k. The TPMS light set. All tires @ 35psi. Reset TPMS today, stayed off with no issues. My guess is the sway set the TPMS as everything seems fine. These indirect tire pressure systems are odd to me but if they work...

On another note I'm thinking about rear tiguan springs. Can any one confirm height gain and ride quality change?

My tpms light has gone on several times. Haven't had a tire with low pressure yet.

Another option I thought was pretty cool was adjustable air bags you insert in the springs. There is a video here or myturbodiesel.com of install. Actually doesn't look too difficult.

Late update
All tires @ 35lbs. Reset TPMS light by pushiing glove box button. Been out ever since. Mustve been the excessive sway from the weight on the rear basket + twisties on a 400 mile trip
